Zippy Zebras Fun

Monday, February 3rd, 2020

Hi crafty friends and welcome back.  Sandi MacIver here and I have some Zippy Zebras Fun to share with you today.  This adorable Zippy Zebra stamp and die combo is from our friends over at My Favorite Things.  Their stamp artwork is always adorable and uplifting and this set is no exception.  Who can resist a Zebra on a scooter?  NOT ME!   haha.

Zippy Zebras Fun

I started by blending the background in Peacock Feather and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks for a bright playful look.  Next, I splattered with water for some distressing.

The black and white Zebra stamping is super easy and you can use Copic Markers Co and C1 (light grays) to add a little shadow down the side for depth.

I colored the scooter with Copics in Blues:  BG11, BG13, Bg49 and the tires in C5 and C6 with a bit of White Gel Pen to highlight.

There are sweet butterflies and flowers in the stamp set too, as well as coordinating dies which I have used to cut out my Zippy Zebras (love that name).

Next I cut out my “Hugs” from white card stock using Alpha dies.  The final sentiment is white heat embossed on black.

The large letters and Zebras are mounted to the card with Foam tape to add depth and extra interest to the card front.

This stamp set is fast and fun, would look great with any background and works for all occasions ….a must for your stamping stash.

That’s it for me today, Hope you enjoyed the card and here is a list of the supplies I used.  Clicking on them will take you to the Scrap ‘N Stamp Store where you can see a larger image and add them to your shopping cart.

Until next time – Toodles!

Laugh ‘Til You Leak!

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Hi friends! It’s Deb here today, from the Design Team. I thought I’d continue on with our Scrap ‘N Stamp ‘Snarky New Year’ blog hop theme with today’s card! If you missed the Hop, be sure to check it out! Enjoy the snarky humour – it’s all in good fun, of course! You can start at my post HERE. Today’s card is made with the same sentiment stamp set, called Laugh ‘Til You Leak by Dyan Reavely. The sentiments in this set just cracks me up!


I had lots of fun creating today’s card. Fun, bright colours, stencils & more were all put to use.

Laugh 'Til You Leak!

You’d definitely have to choose carefully who you send this card to – it’s a special sense of humour  that would appreciate it!


To start, make your ‘extra marbles’, so that they have time to dry. Use small circle dies or punches to create ‘marbles’ in your colour scheme. Create the shine accent with a white gel pen. Next, use Nuvo Crystal Glaze and apply it over the entire circle. Set them aside to dry.

Now, on a piece of white cardstock, use the MFT Confetti Stencil set and apply 3 different colours of ink. My choice of colours is Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed and Shabby Shutters Distress ink. Use one stencil for the top, and the 2nd stencil for the bottom, to cover the entire panel.  These fun coloured dots are your ‘marbles’!  Next, use the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies to die cut the stenciled panel, plus 2 more in the same or similar colours to the ink. Create a card base from the 3rd colour.

Use glue or tape to layer the die cut rectangles to the card base, offsetting them on angles. Stamp the sentiment from the Laugh ‘Til You Leak set in Nocturne ink onto white cardstock. Cover with clear embossing powder, and heat set. Next, cut the sentiment apart, and attach the strips to the card front, with fun foam or foam tape.  Once your die cut/punched ‘marbles’ are dry, attach them to the card front – watch out, they’re escaping through the ‘hole’!

Now, with a sentiment like this on the front, you may want to soften the statement with one inside!

After die cutting the stenciled panel, I used the leftover frame and attached it to a white panel, on the inside of the card. The sentiment is from the MFT Sassy Pants Best Friends stamp set. No one could be mad at this, right?!

I hope that you’ve enjoyed my card today, and seen how snarky doesn’t have to be mean! It’s all about keeping it in good fun, and knowing your recipient. *wink* The products I’ve used for my card are all in the Scrap ‘N Stamp online store – links are below. Have a fun day!

My Favorite Things Galore!

Friday, January 10th, 2020

They’re not called ‘My Favorite Things’ for nothing, I guess! This whole card is My Favorite Things galore – the stamp set, the dies and stencils! If they had ink pads, I’d probably have used them, too. Hi – it’s Deb here from the Design Team, to share a new project with you today. I’ve had this Jumping Giraffe stamp set for a while, but this is the first time I’ve  used it. Get ready for some serious cute!


I had fun with the layout I used for a card earlier this week – you can see it HERE – so I used it again. By changing up the background and colours, I achieved a new, fun look.

My Favorite Things Galore!

I told you it was cute! Adding the stenciled confetti background really amps up the fun factor of this card.


On a white cardstock panel, lay the first of the MFT Confetti Stencil on top. I hold it in place with Purple Tape; it’s the quickest & easiest to do. Apply Gina K. Peach Bellini ink with a blending tool. Now, remove this stencil, and lay the 2nd confetti stencil on top of the same panel. You can see that the confetti dots are offset from each other. Now, apply Broken China Distress Oxide ink through the stencil. Remove this stencil, and wipe both clean with a damp cloth or paper towel. I love how easy the clean up is!

On a separate piece of white cardstock, stamp the Jumping Giraffe image with Nocturne ink. Cover with clear embossing powder, and heat set. Colour the giraffe with your choice of alcohol markers or pencils. Next, use the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies and die cut the image. Add Broken China ink around the edges using a blending tool.  Finally, stamp the sentiment, also from the Jumping Giraffe stamp set, in Nocturne ink, and heat set with clear embossing powder.  Add a few more of the coloured confetti dots near the edges of the sentiment strip, for more fun.


Now you’re ready to layer it all together with glue, fun foam or foam tape.

My Favorite Things Galore!

Did you catch the play on words in the sentiment? I don’t know about you, but a giraffe on a Pogo stick is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!

I hope you’ve been inspired to have fun and get creative – even if your next card isn’t My Favorite Things Galore, like this one! Mixing and matching brands is fun to do; this one just happened to work out to be some of ‘my favorite things’, all on one card.  Shopping for these products is easy; I’ve included links below, for your convenience. Thanks for spending some time with me today – have a ‘hoppy’ day!
